Following the 2020 release of the F1® Seventy, the lights are turning green for our next official Formula 1® project. The limited-edition F1® Speed collection is on the grid, led by Racing Red and ready to rush to you from the end of June, 2021.
The collection is made from carbon fibre and high-gloss, lacquered brass – complemented by satin-finish, ruthenium-brass hardware. Other detailing includes a sterling-silver finial core, hi-visibility resin accents and a scorched stainless-steel barrel end.
Aerodynamic contours are found in a radical flared barrel, graduated step and clip, and are inspired by lines of Formula 1’s next-generation 2022 design package. F1® branding on the clip is hand-enamelled, as is the Montegrappa insignia – boldly positioned on the finial tyre element.
F1® Speed – Racing Red is available in rollerball and fountain pen editions of 372 pieces – a reference to the top speed ever recorded in a FIA Formula One World Championship race (Juan Pablo Montoya/McLaren-Mercedes at the 2005 Italian Grand Prix).
Fountain pens are cartridge/converter-driven, and are fitted with a ruthenium-plated, 6mm 18K gold custom F1® logo medium nib. Custom packaging is a scaled-up version of our Premium packaging finished in racing-red and black with the F1® logo.
